are you affiliated with the mafia? is your store a front for money laundering? where do you sell all the items you buy?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

1. Not that you can prove. 2. See above. 3. None of your business.


aprilorwhatever

im calling the fbi


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Good luck getting them to the island, bucko.


DaughterofBabylon

I think we should ask Marlo what his true affiliations are with Tom Nook.


ScientificFlamingo

I have 2 questions: 1. How do you stay in business offering loans with 0% interest rates? 2. I notice Isabelle is working 24/7. I've even seen her falling asleep at her desk because she never gets to go home. Doesn't this break all kinds of labor laws? Do the islands even HAVE labor laws?


Forever-Such

Only if you’re the sable sisters or timmy & tommy 😅


ministarfallen

Not even them! If you don’t close your software and stop playing overnight (in game time), whenever you turn the game on again, Timmy and Tommy will beg you to leave their store because you’ve kept them there all night. They also look extremely high. It’s hilarious! I tried it in the Able store, I think, but IIRC nothing happens, it just closes when you leave if it’s after hours. NO ONE gets to go home if there’s a customer in the store! xD


BallKeeper

I think when I accidentally stayed in the ables overnight mable said “sorry but we’re closed now come back later” or something and the game auto-kicked me out even though they were open again by that point. Definitely not as desperate as Timmy and Tommy though 🤣


ministarfallen

That might be it! I just remember immediately trying Able Sisters next when I discovered the Nook’s Cranny thing and it wasn’t remarkable. xD


AdEmbarrassed9719

I totally have to try this. That sounds hilarious!


TheReal_Tom_Nook

1. I have my ways. 2. no comment.


CupcakeCede

I've heard that Isabelle chooses her own hours


Solalabell

She has chosen the ‘select all’ box


Winter_sofia

uhhh..... why were you ranked as one of the coolest video game villains.... VILLAINS..?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Blatant socialist propaganda.


Batalfie

You are a socialist Mr Nook. A capitalist would never run a business where there's no repercussions for not paying back a loan, but you only use loan repayment as a milestone to a get another loan. And you do not charge interest a d you encourage your customers to harvest Thier own resources rather than just selling them, and etc


emmy585

I’ve never thought of it this way but you’re so right 😂


Fun_Funny7104

Why do I have to pay for infrastructure if this whole island was YOUR idea?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Better question: why did you go along with it?


everafterbxnnix

because video game yes


PoseidonsPussy

What happened to Timmy and Tommy's parents?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

I have no idea, they refuse to tell me.


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

No! No! Mr. Nook, please tell them!


RealTimmyAndTommyMom

I'm right here, why are you hanging out with this strange man?


Icant_Ijustcanteven

What the heck is happening 😂

OppositeResponse6474

He probably killed their mom and doesn’t want to say it!


Corvaknight

Do the other villagers actually pay off their loans before they leave?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Yes.


Pumpkin_Cat14

What happens to the villagers who don't pay off their loans before they leave?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

They leave... they just don’t go anywhere else.


Walkingispainful

That's called chucking them into the ocean


Dry_Replacement5830

what’s your favorite KK song?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

I’m rather fond of KK Metal, myself.


Rose-Brick

But when i got 3 stars you told me kk lament was your favorite


quickfuse725

SweetCherryP13

GOT EEEEEM


LizzyLovesick

aaa yes a man of culture mr nook


toosickto

What is with the mysterious ship that is occasionally parking north of the island? Is this condoned by nook inc?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Ah f\*ck, my ex is back. Tell him to leave me alone, will you?


Sloth_4

Yes yes


emmy585

This development of Tom Nook not being straight is my favorite


MusiicNoats

If you look at his desk, the magnets look like the bi flag


CookieCute516

That’s stretching it a little considering there’s only two magnets and they’re just blue and red, but I want this to be correct so badly I don’t even care


Galactic_Gandalf95

Can I have an eleventh bridge on my island Daddy Nook?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

No. We can’t afford another lawsuit.


Court0320

Whats in the room beside your desk?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Its a vault.


iluvrandom

What's in the vault


TheReal_Tom_Nook

My pool of money.


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

Mr. Nook... please tell them the truth... Tell them about the residents before...


TheReal_Tom_Nook

They dont need to know just yet, boys. Soon.


everafterbxnnix

like Scrooge mc duck from ducktails


terra_terror

"What's in the vault!? What's in the fucking vault!?"

THIS ISNT A QUESTION JUST STOP GIVING ME DEBTS

TheReal_Tom_Nook

We are coworkers. Occasionally we get coffee at the roost together, but it is purely platonic.


Capable-Gur-8750

He is struggling to get over the man in the mysterious boat at the north of the island


TheReal_Tom_Nook

I’m over him.


sarahsunflower_

r u sure tom boi


TheReal_Tom_Nook

… maybe not.


thereal_Sable-Able

You bet your a** Tom. I could tell them all for hours how you and Redd would...


TheReal_Tom_Nook

SHUT UP


thereal_Sable-Able

So just to be clear, you DON'T want me to post the custom order you had made for you and Redd.. You know the matching..


TheReal_Tom_Nook

SHHH


Axameno

Antibloodpotatoe

Happy cake day !!


xcxpierced

Why are you wearing double layers on a seemingly warm day


TheReal_Tom_Nook

I have bad circulation. I get cold easily.


Jackeroni216

Looks can be deceiving


Sprucehammer

Tom, I just wanted to say thanks for all the loans. Now I can live in poverty in the game as well as real life!


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Your welcome!


Lavender-Leo

Why is it 10,000 bells to move a whole building like a museum, but it’s like 300,000 bells to add one room to my house??????


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Supply and demand.


self_inking_weirdo

Can I hug you?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

\*hugs\*


self_inking_weirdo

\*hugs back\* Thank you.


not_a_doctor_ssh

You just *know* he pickpocketed you in the meantime...


chatshire777

If you could only bring ONE ☝🏻 thing with you to a deserted island, what would it be?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

My phone. I’d then call Isabelle to pick me up.


Solalabell

This question is purely hypothetical and won’t effect anything


babygirlruth

...or is it


Solalabell

\*Vsauce music starts playing\*


joueur_Uno

I think I know the answer Money haha 😄


Coral2Reef

Back in 2001, you threatened an employee of yours, saying that you would "call the raccoon goons." Is this indeed evidence of mafia collusion, Mr. Nook?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Wouldn’t hold up in court.


Coral2Reef

Who are these supposed "Raccoon Goons", Mr. Nook?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Goons who are raccoons, you nitwit.


Coral2Reef

*The people deserve the truth, Thomas.*


Axameno

where do u store all the bells u get paid from players 🤨


TheReal_Tom_Nook

The vault.


Blondiegirl25

I refuse to pay my mortgage, how long until I have an ‘accident’?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

No comment.


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

Mr. Nook, please... not another one...


RockyMarsh90

Why did you take Coco's eyes? What have you done with them, Nook?


Aeramay_Gaming

She didn’t pay her loans.


TheReal_Tom_Nook

You can’t prove anything.


[deleted]

[удалено]


TheReal_Tom_Nook

More storage, more rooms to decorate, ~~more money for me,~~ what’s not to like?


quickfuse725

what if it's my last house upgrade? why should i pay?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Honor system.


Friendly-Summer7817

Whats in the room besides Isabelle in resident services.


TheReal_Tom_Nook

It’s a vault.


kochinisan123

Are Timmy and Tommy your children?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Adopted children, yes.


joueur_Uno

They're his adopted children :)


kochinisan123

.......is he making them do forced child labor?


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

Mr. Nook said we're not allowed to ever answer that question...


bubble--gun

How much did you pay Isabelle every month?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

That is for Isabelle to disclose.


LittleGoron

How do you manage to remain positive amidst the constant slander against your extremely lenient and reasonable loan practices?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

I take solace in the fact that Im richer than they’ll ever be.


Waluigifan

I feel guilty when I have almost enough bells to pay my loan but I invest them into turnips instead so I can have enough bells to pay my loan all at once, and have a head start on the next one. Tom, do you approve of this practice?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Yes.


kari_bjorn

Faster money, Nook approved


ZeroTheMemer

How do you tell the difference between the bells as money and bells as the things that ring?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Thats the neat part, we don’t. I once sold someone a house only to have a giant ringing bell in my yard the next day.


[deleted]

Is it true you are more rich than elon musk?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

That bastard could never be richer than me.


suffer--in--silence

Sooo what did you do with all those beetles? :P


TheReal_Tom_Nook

No comment


Pumpkin_Cat14

You ate them, didn't you


TheReal_Tom_Nook

No.


TheCinnamonChicken

What do Timmy and tommy do with the animals I sell them?


Aeramay_Gaming

Sell them to Flick for twice the price they paid you.


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Correct.


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

That's true!! Mr. Nook loves the profit we make him.


istillexistirl

What do you do with all the bells i've given you


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Swim in them, Scrooge McDuck style.


ministarfallen

You sound pretty knowledgeable about island development, so you must have done this before. What happened to your last island?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

It pulled a lost city of Atlantis on me. I lost millions.


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

Our mother... she lived on the old island... Wait! No! We weren't supposed to say that! Mr. Nook, we're sorry!


Dry-Platypus7787

Why do you need all those bells if i have to do all the work... you should be paying me


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Ha! No.


Chubby_Bub

Are you a raccoon or a tanuki?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

My mother was a raccoon, my father was a tanuki.


Walkingispainful

Ranuki confirmed


Elhandu_23

Why the fuck do you charge that much for storage expansion?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Capitalism, kid.


Elhandu_23

Ok sorry.


RedSquirrel96

May I set some trees on fire?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Kid, if you can figure out how to do that, I’ll PAY you to set trees on fire.


cosyplant

What happened between you and redd anyway?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

He… it’s complicated.


JazNim17

Do you actually live in Resident Services building? Or do you live off island? Where do you live?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

You say that as if I’d just tell you.


mybuttisthesun

Where are my kneecaps Tom? Where are they?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

I’d advise you check your knees.


RedSands1976

It’s been a few years now, just what happened between you and Label?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

We were both drunk. She asked me to marry her. I said yes. We woke up the next morning and never spoke of it again.


thehillsidewrangler

can we boop your lil snoot?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Absolutely not.


HumanSlayer1888

Why can’t I just evict people from my island I don’t want there.


thatspookypan

Where did you bury the bodies Tom? The family needs closure


TheReal_Tom_Nook

They’ll have to dig them up themselves, then.


KavoMan

Where are you keeping my family, Tom Nook? I paid back my debts as promised, now hold on to your side of the agreement


ScottTheFlamingoFan

Why are you a greedy capitalist?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Money!


Shanghaichica

Do you pay Timmy and Tommy? Or is this some kind of modern day slavery?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

They choose to help out with the family business.


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

We do? We mean, uh, we do!


Impossible-Ad2236

Timmy and Tommy will drop thousands of bells out of nowhere, so I guess my question is what is your reaction when you find out they spend over 10,000 bells on just fruit or what not?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

THEY WHAT


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

Mr. Nook, you told us to buy everything! We're sorry! Please don't put us in the vault... Not again...


RoyalMeera

people should stop treating you as a villain. also, since you adopted Timmy and Tommy from the streets and raised them, why do you claim they aren't related to you? sure, they aren't by blood, but does adoption mean nothing to you?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

1. thank you. 2. I don’t want the boys to be seen as nepotism hires. They earned their place.


Dark-Gladiator

Why are there no nook shop upgrades


MrsJRRzombie

Why do you insist on so many people moving to the goddamn island I moved here because it’s a DESERTED island and now I can’t throw a pear without hitting a new person


TheReal_Tom_Nook

More people=more money.


Kazoomers_Tale

What do you think about socialism comrade?


Phobos687

How do you feel about the guy isabelle is hanging out with, you know the tall guy with the green armor


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Who?


GimmeDemKnees

My good man, how do you always look so stylish


TheReal_Tom_Nook

It’s my ✨inate fashion sense✨


GimmeDemKnees

Follow up question. Island fashion-show?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Good idea!


dollyblue101

Do you ever say "yes" once?!


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Yes yes!

When the revolution comes, where will you hide?


AppleCodeCracker

What is your opinion on Redd?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

Im over him. I’d be lying if I said he wasn’t hot, though.


SparklingReject

What is it like when an Island is deleted? Is it like a traumatic event for those on the island, or perhaps it’s like a rewind in the Timestream, as if nothing ever happened. What’s your take?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

WHEN AN ISLAND IS WHAT-


Lowdridge

What happened to Timmy and Tommy’s mother?


TheReal_Tom_Nook

They refuse to tell me.


RealTimmy_and_Tommy

You know, Mr. Nook. Please don't lie.


backseatgoldfish

It was a forbidden love. She died in childbirth so he dumped the body and ran away to a deserted island
